Message From the Director
OVC's Publishing Guidelines describe
the criteria grantees and contractors must follow when submitting
materials to OVC to be published. We are committed to producing
quality products and welcome this opportunity to help you develop
dynamic and useful products that will both inspire
and instruct the victims' rights and services community.
Most of our products are now published exclusively on our Web site, providing greater access to virtually all types of information. This guide includes tips on preparing information
for the Web that will help youthe grantee or contractordevelop
and organize content in a way that expedites
the publishing process.
In addition to Web-based publications, we offer a wide range of educational multimedia products designed to enhance the skills of service providers. Because these products play an important role in advancing our training agenda, we have expanded the publishing guidelines to include basic principles that will help producers skillfully manage the production process. We hope you will find this section useful and informative when planning your video project.
As the federal office responsible for enhancing the Nation's capacity to assist crime victims and provide leadership in changing attitudes, policies, and practices to promote justice and healing for all victims, we look forward to working with you to produce products that meet and exceed professional standards of excellence.
